The top outdoor bowls competitors from across the country came to Skegness for the annual EBA Bowls Tournament last week.

The competition, hosted by Magna Vitae, was held at Skengess North Greens on North Parade from 2nd–7th July.

Local participants were joined by challengers from as far afield as Buckinghamshire and Cambridgshire to contest in categories including Ladies Pairs, Ladies Singles, Mixed Pairs, Gents Pairs and Gents Singles.

Event organiser, David Willoughby said “We have once again been very impressed by the number of competitors and standard of play at this year’s EBA Bowls Tournament.

We would like to thank Butlins and Skegness East Coast and Wolds Hospitality Association (SECHWA) for sponsoring two of the categories in the tournament.
